5. This is about as good as it gets. I'm not, for the most part, the biggest David Tennant fan in the world, but he is absolutely superb in this. Without him doing anything remotely over- the-top or 'actory' he makes it completely believable that the Doctor has become an entirely different person, and the scenes he has with Jessica Hynde (Hind? Hyne? Hines? Oh you know, the one who used to be Jessica Stevenson) are just wonderful.
Martha also gets a great story in this. Often in this series she's just the stock companion (I get the impression of writers not really knowing who she was and just writing her a bog-standard-companion part at times) but she really gets a chance to shine in this, and Freema Agyeman takes full advantage of it.
And the whole storyline is brilliant. From the scary scarecrows at the start all the way to the very moving scene of the elderly Latimer at Remembrance Day at the end, everything just works perfectly. And the punishment the Doctor metes out to the Family of Blood is about as chilling as Doctor Who gets.
